How Trayvon Martin was murdered by George Zimmerman …

Posted by DNW on 2013/07/14


UPDATE.  The following changes illustrated by the strikeouts have been made out of a respect for accuracy and fairness, something we, especially those on my side of the Martin-Zimmerman news reporting fiasco issue should be highly mindful of  – even if the attempt to be accurate and fair seems to fly in the face of what seems to be self-evident: i.e., in this case the “CBS This Morning” logo. See the latest posting on this matter.

Second update. It appears that our scrupulosity was was uncalled for.

CBS News was in fact responsible for the computer generated video insert in their report which portrayed George Zimmerman shooting down an non-aggressive and child-like Trayvon Martin (dressed in short pants) from a distance .  CBS, through one of their employees had denied that the video, or the segment, “belonged”  to them, but rather to Reuters,  whatever “belonged” was supposed to mean in their usage. I was never able to clarify it with them, and and continued attempts to do so became pointless in the face of the evidence, still available, that it was they who had in fact had published the recklessly misleading and prejudicial account of the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

 

 

 

According to CBS News … Or, maybe not CBS, but Reuters ….

This is John’s blog, so I hesitate to  quote commenter Eric on another blog accurately if vulgarly referring to leftists as being lower than snake shit.

But frankly, how could anyone deny it? How could anyone who as been watching the lead-up to the Zimmerman trial possibly argue that they, the members of the mainstream, left-leaning, almost completely populated by Democrats media,  have any interest in presenting an accurate recounting of facts?

Time after time, they persistently demonstrate they have no such  interest in getting the details right, and that they will elide, insinuate, and even deceptively edit the record for effect; as  NBC News did with the police department recording of Zimmerman speaking to the Sanford Police Department dispatcher.

Exactness, or even accuracy and truth mean nothing to them when their narrative is at stake.

They won’t even get the petty details correct for fear that exposing these details might redound negatively upon the story line they are attempting to push.

Over at the Huffington Post for example, with the trial over and while they are covering the verdict wrap-up, they are still saying Trayvon bought an “iced tea”. Whether they never paid close enough attention to the police photos to notice what it was Martin actually bought, or whether they are sensitive to either a potential racial stereotyping of the purchase, or the possible drug use implications of what it was that he did buy, in each and/or any event, they are perpetrating a fraud on those readers seeking objective information, and a truthful recounting.

“Objective and truthful”: That would be a recounting on which civil peace and other human lives might even depend.

Below is another example of the journalistic malpractice that has gone on during this case. It is illustrated by a screen capture I managed to make some months ago, and which I recently had to do a computer file search on,  in order to find again.

This is the same screen capture I had mentioned in an earlier posting as not being ready to hand.

This looked to be is taken from a “CBS This Morning” computer animation of the shooting which was Reuters apparently allowed to be re-presented on Yahoo:

Zimmerman portrayed as shooting Martin down at a distance

Look what’s being shown here for God’s sake: Zimmerman, gunning down a kid in short pants from yards away. No wonder the low information types went out of their minds.

And here is a capture of the web address …

Try it for yourself, and see what you come up with.

So now, what do we have here? We have as everyone already knows,  a clear pattern of the news media attempting to inflame passions and railroad a verdict with a grave indifference to the false narrative they were constructing. It may have been motivated by ideology in some cases, racial animus in others, or a “mere” desire to profit from whatever outrage and attention could be stimulated or provoked in others.

What possible excuse though could these sub-moral creatures offer up for their behavior?

Well, my experiences in dealing with the type convince me that their nihilism is so deep that they are indifferent to the harm they might wreak, and the very idea of excusing their behavior would seem as alien to them as considering it within a framework of “right and wrong” in the first place.

That, is what we are dealing with folks. We need to remember that always. As if we could ever forget, that is.

    Ultimately, it will be pitch black if justice is real and it trumps mercy.

    Comment update.

    I was able to go back into my old computer files and find the original Yahoo/Reuters news story with the CBS video, which I had saved as a “complete web page” file.

    Disconnecting the old computer from the Internet, so as not to corrupt the file as I tried to reload it, and then dragging the saved html file into an open Firefox window, I was able to get the entire page to reload just as it had been in May of 2012 – almost.

    The video window seemed momentarily to become active when I then reconnected the computer Internet cable; but when I tried to play it I got a message on a black background saying “Sorry this video is no longer available”

    When I tried some of the links in the page however, they worked just fine.

    Using the headline and the author’s name and the news service name in a Google search, I got this completely restructured web page.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/08/us-crime-florida-neighborhoodwatch-idUSBRE82709M20120308

    Not even a trace there of the missing video showing George Zimmerman gunning down a child-like Trayvon from a distance..

    I wonder if CBS still has it available somewhere? Yuh think?

    Surely they must have. What could they possibly be afraid of?

    Maybe I’ll write them and ask nicely for a copy.

    Rachel, the sullen and surly witness in her own words, “be the new school”. The inheritor of a glorious future, or so she seems to imagine. A 19 year old 11th grader who cannot “read cursive”. A Miami born child whose defenders plead that as foreign born, English is her second language. A woman who should have been a sophomore in college, if she was all that she proclaimed herself to be, but who actually spent 6 hours that day blathering on a cell phone to a 17 year old drug user and thug wannabe who was wandering around in the rain while – a good case has been made – looking to stock up on “lean” mix, and standing on lawns peering into other people’s townhouses.

    The jury, they be the old school though. So they don’t get any of the beauty of all that.

    What would happen if the people who know how to build and make things, left the people who have no interest in doing so, to their natural fate?
